Video / Photography

With two full-time photographers/videographers, Digital Communications can meet many of the photographic and video needs on campus. The team provides creative direction for photo and video production to support UO colleges, departments, and initiatives.


A picture is worth 1,000 words. It grabs your attention, provokes motion, tells a story, and sticks with you.

In addition, our photography also reflects and reinforces the University of Oregon brand. Our photography style tells our story and spotlights the people and places that make the University of Oregon great. It exemplifies what it means to be a Duck: inclusive, extraordinary, progressive, and irreverent.

The photo services provided by Digital Communications support the mission of the Office of University Communications and are used for visual and informational purposes. Photography taken by Digital Communications photographers is used in reputation defining communications for the University or Oregon, including Around the O, social media, brochures, newsletters, and websites.

Photo Database

The team also offers ResourceSpace, the university’s curated, central image repository, containing the latest images taken by university departments and affiliated photographers.


Videos bring stories to life and have the ability to convey communications messages in remarkable ways. Digital Communications videographers can help you craft the best video representation of a message — from a 30-second clip to a longer documentary about services, projects or programs.

Our video production is supported with state-of-the-art professional high-definition equipment, both in acquisition and post-production activities. However, video production is a time-consuming, expensive process. The use of video should be carefully considered before proceeding.

Model Release Form

A model release form may be necessary for most film or photography involving people amid UO locations. As a general rule, if video or photography focuses on a single person or a small group, they should complete and sign a model release form. Always have release forms signed for minors. If there is any question as to the legal standing to use the likeness of your subject, have him or her sign a release form.
